St. Mary's School was founded in 1842, by the Rev. Aldert Smedes, D.D. 
The opening day was May 12th, now celebrated as Alumnse Day. 

The present location was first set apart as the site of an Episcopal school in 
1832, when influential churchmen, carrying out a plan proposed by Bishop Ives, 
purchased the present "Grove" as a part of a tract of one hundred and sixty 
acres, to be used in establishing a Church School for boys. First East Rock House, 
then West Rock House and Main Building were built for use in this boys' school. 
But the school, though it started out with great promise, proved unsuccessful 
and was closed; and the property passed back into private hands. 

Bishop Ives was instrumental in 1842 in getting Dr. Aldert Smedes, at that 
time conducting a successful girls' school in New York City, to come to Raleigh 
to establish St. Mary's, which he did in May, 1842, as stated. 

From the first the school was a success, and for the remainder of his life Dr. 
Smedes allowed nothing to interrupt the work he had undertaken. During the 
years of the War between the States St. Mary's was at the same time school and 
refuge for those driven from their homes. It is a tradition of which her daughters 
are proud, that during those years of struggle her doors were ever open, and that 
at one time the family of the beloved President of the Confederacy were sheltered 
within her walls. 

On April 25, 1877, Dr. Smedes died, leaving St. Mary's to the care of his son, 
Rev. Dr. Bennett Smedes, who had been during his father's lifetime a teacher in 
the school. This trust was regarded as sacred, and for twenty-two years, in which 
he spared neither expense nor pains, Dr. Bennett Smedes carried on his father's 
work for education. 

During this eventful half-century, St. Mary's was in the truest sense a Church 
school, but it was a private enterprise. 

In 1897, at the suggestion of Dr. Bennett Smedes, the Diocese of North 
Carolina purchased the real property from Mr. Cameron, the private owner, and 
the school equipment from Dr. Smedes; and the School was chartered by the 
General Assembly. The corporate title is "The Trustees of St. Mary's School, 
Raleigh, N. C." 

Dr. Smedes continued as Rector until his death in 1899. He was succeeded 
by Dr. Bratton, who resigned to become Bishop of Mississippi in 1903. Rev. 
McNeely DuBose succeeded Dr. Bratton in September, 1903, and was in turn 
succeeded by the present Rector, Rev. Geo. W. Lay, in July, 1907. 

During the life of the founder St. Mary's was a high class school for the gen- 
eral education of girls, the training being regulated by the needs and exigencies of 
the years. Pupils finished their training without "graduating." In 1879, under 
the second Rector, set courses were established, covering college preparatory work 

without sacrificing the special features which the school stands for, and in June, 
1879, the first class was regularly graduated. 

In May, 1900, the Trustees determined to establish the College, and the 
standard was accordingly raised. 

For the first fifteen years of St. Mary's there were but the three buildings 
that now form the central group. The Chapel was on the first floor of East Rock; 
the Rector and his family lived in the east half of the second floor of the Main 
Building; dormitories of the style of those still surviving were on both floors of 
West Rock and on the second floor of East Rock as well as on the third floor of the 
Main Building. 

In 1867 the Chapel was built by the owner of the property according to Dr. 
Smedes' wishes. It was designed by Upjohn, a famous architect of the time, and 
the first floor of East Rock became available for other purposes. During the war 
as many individuals found a home in the school as have ever been accommodated 
since, but there was much "doubling up." In ordinary times, however, the full 
number of boarding pupils was usually less than a hundred. 

In 1884 the Art Building, intended for recitation purposes only, was added 
to the equipment. The building was scarcely finished when it caught fire and was 
entirely burned, but without delay the present building was erected on the same 
foundations. No need for further new buildings was felt from this time until 
after the coming of Dr. Bratton, when his magnetic influence and the inauguration 
of an active campaign for students for what was now the Diocesan School led to a 
complete overflowing of the buildings. As speedily as possible funds were secured 
and Dr. Bratton had the North Dormitory and Rectory erected, meantime using 
the old Blount mansion across the street as an overflow dormitory. 

The loss of the wooden Infirmary by fire in 1904 led to the building of the new 
brick Infirmary in that year; the next year the Chapel was rebuilt and enlarged 
through the efforts of the Alumnae; in 1907 the Auditorium was erected as the 
Eliza Battle Pittman Memorial, and in 1909, partly through the Clement Legacy, 
Clement Hall and East and West Wing were added. 

The present session the enrollment at St. Mary's for the first time passed the 
three hundred mark, and more resident St. Mary's girls have been in attendance 
than ever before. The boarding accommodations are at present limited to one 
hundred and seventy-five, which however still makes St. Mary's the largest Episco- 
pal resident school for girls and young women in this country.

Tune — "Believe me, if all those endearing young charms." 

St. Mary's, wherever thy daughters may be, 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling. 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name, 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove; 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved St. Mary's! How great is our debt! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast-rolling years it will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good of th r past 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings o'er woodland and hill, 

Of earnestness, wisdom and love. 

H. E. H., 1905.

Miss Eleanor Randolph Wilson 

third daughter of 

President Woodrow Wilson 

g Eater "Bausfjtcr" 

St. Mary's has always been proud to 
claim "Mildred Lee" as one of her daugh- 
ters of the earlier days, and she is proud 
to claim "Nell Wilson" as one of her 
daughters in the present generation. 

The spirit of the old South was, we 
believe, the spirit of St. Mary's, as it was 
typified in General Lee; the spirit of the 
new South, the national spirit, we hope is 
characteristic of the St. Mary's of today, 
as it is typified in President Wilson. 

But not alone as Woodrow Wilson's 
daughter 1 is St. Mary's glad to claim "Nell 
Wilson." Her St. Mary's record was a 
worthy one. She took a prominent part 
in the school life, both in her studies and in her student activities and she has 
continued a loyal daughter of St. Mary's since she passed from the School walls. 
Miss Wilson came to St. Mary's in the fall of 1906, after finishing at Miss 
Fine's school at Princeton. She was at St. Mary's two years and was awarded 
an English Certificate in May, 1908. Mr. DuBose was the Rector when she 
entered St. Mary's, and Mrs. DuBose and Mrs. Wilson had been girlhood friends, 
Mrs. DuBose having been one of Mrs. Wilson's bridesmaids. 

St. Mary's girls do not often elect Greek, so that when Miss Wilson took up 
Greek at her father's wish she at once conveyed an impression of intellectuality, 
and in 1908 she was the "Statistics" choice as "The Most Intellectual." She was 
a member of Miss Thomas' Sorority, Alpha Kappa Psi, and debated for Sigma 
Lambda in the Debate of 1908. She was a member of the Muse Club and of the 
Annual Muse Board, and contributed a part of the drawings for the 1908 Muse. 
She also played tennis, started the Riding Club, and belonged to such beautiful (?) 
organizations of that day as "W. I." and "H. D. S." So present-day girls can see 
how completely a St. Mary's girl she was. 

Her picture here is her "Certificate Picture" from the 1908 Muse.

The Alumnae Association of St. Mary's was established in 1880 and meets annually at Com- 
mencement. It has done effective work in aiding the progress of the School and grows yearly 
stronger and more vigorous. 

The Alumnae Chapters meet in their several towns and cities on November 1st, All Saints, 
which is celebrated as Founders' Day, and on May 12th, the date of the first opening of St. Mary's, 
which is observed as Alumna; Day. There are active Alumnse Chapters in New York City, 
Baltimore, and many points in the South. 

The most important special work accomplished by the Alumnse Association has been the 
establishment of the Smedes Memorial Scholarship, to the memory of the Founder and his son, 
the second Rector of St. Mary's; and the rebuilding of the Chapel. Its present special work is 
the fund for establishing the Mary Iredell and the Kate McKimmon Scholarships. 

Qtfje paintings in %\)t parlor 


Bishop Ravenscroft 

This portrait of Bishop Ravenscroft was obtained by Dr. 
Smedes, some years before the War, from Mr. Chas. P. Mallett, 
of Fayetteville, for whom it was painted in 1829-'30 by Jacob 
Eicholtz, a celebrated Philadelphia painter. 

These facts are given by Mr. Marshall DeLancey Haywood 
in his "Bishops of North Carolina," and to Mr. Haywood the 
Muse is also indebted for the use of the plates from which the 
paintings are reproduced here.

The Confirmation Group 

This portrait, representing Bishop Ives in the act of con- 
firming a class of four girls, has hung in the parlor at St. Mary's 
for more than half a century. It was painted for Dr. Aldert 
Smedes by William Hart about the year 1844. 

St. Mary's girls of the time sat for Mr. Hart while he was 
at work on the painting, but it has never been fully established 
whether the girls' figures are portraits or merely "fancy pic-

In a grove of stately oak trees, 
Where the sunlight lies, 
Stands St. Mary's true and noble, 
'Neath the Southern skies. 

Far and wide, oh sound her praises, 

Chorus full and free, 
Hail, St. Mary's, Alma Mater, 

Hail, all hail to thee! 

Well we love the little chapel, 
Ever hold it dear; 
Hear the echoes of the music 
Rising soft and clear. 

Far and wide, etc. 

There the ivy and the roses 
Climb the old stone wall, 
There the sweet, enticing bird notes 
Sound their magic call. 

Far and wide, etc. 

And the bonds of friendship strengthen 
As her beauties charm; 
We draw close to Alma Mater, 
Trust her guiding arm. 

Far and wide, etc. 



The Nineteen Thirteen Senior Class 
Comes now to bid you all farewell; 
Dear hours that we together passed 
Are gone, our thoughts upon them dwell. 
With saddened hearts we leave these walls. 
To them our girlhood mem'ries cling. 
You campus green and well-loved halls — 
To you our parting praise we sing. 

Hail, hail, constant, true, 
Gleams thy light serene! 
We thy latest daughters 
Hail St. Mary's queen! 

Dear Alma Mater, praise we bring 
For friendships nurtured at your side; 
No dearer, sweeter ties will cling 
To any hearts than here abide. 
Inspired by you our thoughts enfold 
A larger aim. In all you've seemed 
To guide our steps, our lives to mold 
To nobler things we had not dreamed. 

Hail, hail, constant, true, 
Gleams thy light serene! 
We thy latest daughters 
Hail St. Mary's queen!

Though there're only thirteen of them, 

We really, truly love them. 

Their wit, their airs, their beauty we adore; 

O dear class of Nineteen Thirteen, 

We admire you all for certain, 

And we wish you all good future evermore. 

(Refrain of the Junior Song to the Seniors) 

Cfje $ropf)ecp 

Sing a song of Thirteen, 
Hear me prophesy 
Happy maidens' futures 
Buried in a pie. 

When the pie is opened 
See what we shall see — 
Thirteen maids of Thirteen 
Ab they look in Twenty Three. 

Gaze upon them closely 
Every "individell," 
Maybe we can thusly 
Come to guess the riddle. 

This lady hoeing cotton 
In blue jean overalls 
Is Farmer Ellen Johnson, 
On whom the city palls. 

You need not go to London 
To see a suffragette, 
Our Cherry is a fighting one 
You will not soon forget. 

"Miss Maxwell" is a French modiste, 
Her shop's a grand affair; 
She'll trick you out in Paris garb, 
Her gowns have "such an air." 

The secret is that Bessie White 
As model serves her well — 
Our own "best looking girl" 
Makes Madame's gowns look swell. 

Mary Butler's cap and gown 
Proclaim her college "prof." — 
But that we always knew she'd be 
When just a little Soph. 

A sister soul is Margaret Leard, 
A mathematics teacher; 
In her profession she's so high 
It's very hard to reach her. 


And Alice Lacy's classic brow 
Awaits a laurel crowning; 
As poet she is known to fame — 
A second Mrs. Browning. 

You've seen her in the circus 
This gay equestrienne queen; 
The match of our friend Caroline 
Perhaps is never seen. 

But here's a famous lawyer 
In practice wondrous kind; 
The calm, unbiased legal soul 
Shows Jennie Woodruff's mind. 

This famous cook's beyond the reach 
If you should think of hiring; 
But recognize Rebecca Kyle, 
The modest and retiring. 

In course of time we may admire 
This quite entrancing creature; 
What? Amy Winston, can it be? 
A lusty female preacher. 

In years agone the practice halls 
Proclaimed the coming bride; 
Peep 'neath the veil — it's Lizzie Lee; 
How very dignified! 

In spite of youthful charm and grace, 
In spite of beaux galore — 
This rare old maid — Susannah sure; 
I must not tell you more. 

Thus sings the song of Seniors' 
Direful prophecy; 
Thirteen girls of Thirteen, 
In Nineteen Twenty-Three. 

W)t Senior Cijant 

gee, gee, 

Look at me, look at me, 
I'm a full-fledged grad-u-ate; 

My brain's so full of knowledge 

Gained at old St. Mary's College, 
That it almost cracks my pate. 

As a suffragette, 

Or a household pet, 
I'm armed to meet the foe; 

And the merely man, 

Doing the best he can, 
Will stand a very, very poor show. 

fuss, fuss, 

Look at us, look at us, 
The Class of the Great Thirteen: 

We're going to use the knowledge, 

Gained at old St. Mary's College, 
To conquer half the world, we ween. 

So as suffragettes, 

Or as household pets, 
We're surely well prepared 

To make a great big dent 

In the starry firmament 
Or — have our troubles shared. 

Chaw Sir.

Jf trsit anb JLa&t 

When you hear of the school — just as most of us do — 
Of its feasts and its fun — and, of course, lessons, too — 
When you've studied the catalogue through and through — 
That's when you dream of St. Mary's. 

When you've told all your friends and relations "Goodbye," 
And have been on the train till 'most ready to die, 
And are tired and dusty and wanting to cry — 
That's when you dread St. Mary's. 

When 'mid rattle and clatter and dust in whirls 
You find yourself in an ocean of girls, 
With long hair and short hair, with plaits and curls — 
That's when you reach St. Mary's. 

When the girls take to hiding in quiet nooks, 
When all around you see nothing but books — 
And "exam week" is plainly announced by the looks — 
That's when you fear St. Mary's. 

When the day comes that's dearest to every heart, 
When you don't know why, but your eyes will smart, 
When the best of friends are forced to part — 
That's when you leave St. Mary's. 

But from early youth till snowy years, 
'Mid a daily round of laughter and tears, 
Through a whole lifetime of joys and cares — 
That's when you love St. Mary's. 

— M. R. duB., 1905.

Dear old school not a bit forgotten, 

Hooray, hooray, hooray, hooray! 
For St. Mary's dear we'll never fear, 
The thoughts of her bring only cheer, 

Hooray, hooray! hooray for dear 
St. Mary's! 

St. Mary's, yes, great place for schoolin', 
Where you work and play and do some foolin', 
Hooray, hooray, hooray, hooray!

•" Mary's girls and St. Mary's 
teachers have known Mr. Hodg- 
son and found him their friend. 
The Class of 1910 paid tribute 
to him in a special section of 
their Year Book. 

The "Orrible Tale" which he 
told so effectively at the School 
Party, May 10th, is one of the 
compositions of his boyhood 
days. Illustrated by Miss Bot- 
tum, we reproduce it in this 

Mr. Hodgson, who writes as 
"Chaw Sir," had written the 
Class Songs for many St. Mary's 
classes before he wrote "O gee, 
O gee," and to him we also owe 
our first School Song, "Alma

She's out of sight, she's out of sight, 
She's young and pretty, sweet and bright; 
The hat is probably all right, 
But now the girl is out of sight ! 

GEfje atterftolibap Jf eeling 

I've just come back from Christmas; 

Oh, what a time I've had! 
I cannot eat, the sight of food 

Just fairly makes me mad ; 
I've fallen off just fourteen pounds, 

My head aches fit to split, 
My feet are full of blisters and 

I cannot sleep a bit. 
And just imagine, if you can, 

The glorious time I've spent; 
But oh, but oh, you can't conceive 

How much I long for Lent. 


An orrible tale I ave to tell 
About disasters that befell 
A family that once resided 
Upon the very same street as I did. 

And oh it is an orrible tale; 
'Twill make your very cheeks turn pale, 
And your eyes with tears will be overcome, — 
Terwiddle, terwiddle, terwiddledeedum. 

The father, he was a regular gruffun, 
And never had no fun nor nuff un ; 
And never made the least endeavor 
To make no jokes not whatsomedever; 

(For oh it is an orrible tale; 

'Twill make your very cheeks turn pale, etc.) 

He pulled down the blinds to keep out the light, 
And made the place as dark as night, 
So that every boy and every gal 
Grew up hy-po-chon-dri-a-i-cal! 

(For oh, it is an orrible tale; 

'Twill make your very cheeks turn pale, etc.) 

They all agreed to quit this life, 
Which is compoged of sorrow and strife, 
And on the very self-same day, 
Each dispoged of himself in the following way : 
(For oh it is an orrible tale, etc.) 

The father down to the garden did 

And cut his throat with a piece 
of chalk ; 

And the mother an end to her life 
did put, 

By hanging herself in the water- 
(For oh it is an orrible tale, etc.) 

The daughter fell on her bended 

And smothered herself in — 

toasted cheese; 

The servant, seeing what 

they did, 
Strangled herself with a 

saucepan lid; 

Poor Binks, the big pussy, 
that sat by the fire, 

Died of swallowing abruptly 
a big auto tire; 

And the son, he was a deter- 
mined young fellow, 

Pizened himself by swallowing 
his big umbrella. 

(For oh it is an orrible 
tale, etc.) 

And the very baby that lay 

in the cradle; 
Shot its poor head off with 

its own little ladle. 

(For oh it is an orrible tale, etc.) 


And a fly on the ceiling — 

(This case is the wust un — ) 

Just blowed itself up with 
spontaneous combustion. 

(For oh it is an orrible tale, etc.) 

The walls, they opened into 

And the furniture cracked itself 

to bits;

And so universal was the 

There was not a thing left

For oh it is an orrible tale; 
'Twill make your very cheeks turn pale; 
And your eyeB with tears should now o'erflow, 
After listening to my tale of gee-whoa!

9 Eijpme ot Stfje gear 

Listen, dear reader, and you shall hear 
A chronicle brief of our School Year, 
A tale not wild or overthrilling — 
Listen to it, if you are willing. 

We devoted September perforce 

to our classes — 
Or to changing our roommates, — 

And so time passes: 
A little humdrum, as you may 


Then we make our bow to the 

E. A. P., 
And then at the Sigma Lambda 

You haven't the very faintest 

How nice they were; and the Alpha Rho's 

A—\ Li- 

Most charmingly brought the 
g set to a close. 

And then, lest we grow too wise 
or too sober, 

The Circus and Fair the last 
of October. 

But the nicest, jolliest, hap- 
piest scene, 

Was the night we gave to all 

Hallowe'en : 
We danced as witches, as ghosts, 

and as elves, 
In fact we were everything but 

our own selves. 


Then the Chorus Class gave the 

I'm sure you never will see a 

The girls were so good it was 

hard to tell 
The star, but we think she was 
Jennie Belle. 

December 14th was "Mice and Men" — 
Dear Reader, 'twould take a tal- 
ented pen 
To half do justice to all those 

I'll not even try, my brain quite 

But entre-nous, between you and me, 
Perhaps the most charming was 
Elizabeth T. 

Now Christmas is here, but no, 
not quite, 

For before we go there's a won- 
derful sight — 

The Christmas Tree, with its 
color and light — 

The gifts and the carols, the hits are entrancing; 

Next day we go home with hearts madly dancing. 


I know very well my verse is the neater 

By keeping a little bit true 
to the meter, 

But a slow, halting measure now 
grips me perforce, 

For the time is upon us — Examina- 
tions^ — of course. 

They always were bugbears, however 
well meant, 

Tho' perhaps they do make us more ready for Lent. 

A long stretch of study, unbroken monotony, 
The talk is of Algebra, German, 

and Botany. 
Till bright Easter appears, 

with sunshine of spring , 
Our hearts are a-tiptoe, our 

mind on the wing . 

There's an egg-hunt, some parties, 
and dancing once more, 

Tho studies go on just the same 
as before. 

There are Music Recitals, the Dramatic Club play, 
And grand preparations for Senior Class Day: 
Then Commencement approaches — it really is here 
Almost the greatest event of 
the year. 

There's only one greater, now 

say what you choose, 
It's the time you are handed 







Jennie stands for influence; 
Bessie White for looks; 
For courtesy Maie London; 
Mary B. for books. 

Winnie is the dancer; 
E. Candler's very neat; 
Musical Elizabeth 
For talent's hard to beat. 

Helen for ubiquity; 
Tallulah dear for muscle; 
Carrie for the pretty girl ; 
Elise Stiles for hustle. 

Lina L. is popular; 
Louise likes to chatter; 
Fascinating Gertrude 
Dearly loves to flatter. 

Sing a song of maidens — 
Fourteen out of many; 
Should you ask the reason, 
There really isn't any.

" A little nonsense now and then 
Is relished by the best of men." 

g lUttlr g>ong 

I will sing a little song, 
Which shall not be very long, 

All about the sweet St. Maryites; 
Some sober, and some gay, 
Some with nothing much to say, 

And some prepared to set the world to rights! 

Chorus : 

O those dear St. Mary's girls, 

With their graces and their curls, 
How delectable, detestable they are! 

Their dresses and their hats, 

And their funny little spats! 
You will hardly find their equal near or far! 

Ah, they study very hard, 

And they work and toil and plod, 
Each ready for the teacher's beck and call; 

But some there are who state — 

('Tis a wonder to relate) — 
There's a girl or two who Btudies not at all! 

There's a college, I would say, 

Not a half a mile away, 
That educates entrancing little boys; 

And when life seems rather dry, 

And the time goes crawling by — 
On Saturdays they serve as charming toys! 

Now of course it's understood 

That these girls are very good, 
But the teachers just occasionally find 

To restrict a little bit, 

In detention hall to sit, 
Are attentions they consider very kind. 

If you take them all and all, 

From the Dorms to Senior Hall, 
And weigh them in the balance carefully, 

You really might do worse — 

To be very short and terse — 
They absolutely suit me to a tee! 


I've gossiped in the Muse Room, 
I've done twelve units trudge; 

Shared ten Thanksgiving boxes, 
And eaten Miss Ricks' fudge. 

I've seen Maude Reynolds usher, 
Heard the A & M'ers sing; 

Posed for six films of kodaks, 
And seen Miss X 's ring. 

I've voted for statistics, 

I've dined in Clement Hall; 

I've jumped at rope Ash Wednesday, 
And watched Parker-Benson squall. 

I've gone to walk with the Cruikshanks 
I've drunk Miss Graves' tea; 

I've pondered the joys of Europe 
With Miss Fenner and Miss Lee. 

I've dined at the Rector's table, 
I've raced for the evening mail; 

I've listened to Ellen Johnson 
Tell a most exciting tale. 

I've felt Elise hit the mail line 
I've heard the phonograph; 

I've lived through examinations, 
I've seen Mary Bryan laugh. 

I've paid my Muse assessments 
To the very last fifty cents; 

And still you say — 

You're a little bit gay — 
I've had no experience.

a Jfeto Work* about W}t fftvat 

This is the fifteenth volume of The Muse, the Year 
Book of St. Mary's. The monthly Muse, which dates 
from 1879, and was last revived in 1904, is just com- 
pleting its seventeenth volume. These publications 
try to preserve for St. Mary's girls the best general 
reminder of their St. Mary's days and of the student 
life. They have been published since 1906 by the 
Muse Club, under the guidance of Mr. Cruikshank as 
Faculty Director. 

It has been customary each year to dedicate the 
Year Book to one of those in the Faculty of St. Mary's, 
working for St. Mary's, to whom the students wished 
to express their appreciation, and not to dedicate the 
book twice to the same person. It may therefore be 
interesting to recall the names of the friends to whom 
previous Muses have been dedicated: 

1899, Dr. Smedes 

1900, Dr. Bratton 

1901, Miss Stone 

1902, Miss McKimmon 

1904, Bishop Bratton 

1905, Mrs. Bratton 

1906, Mr. DuBose 

1907, Miss Lee 

1908, Mr. Lay 

1909, Mr. Cruikshank 

1910, Miss Sutton 

1911, Miss Dowd 

1912, Miss Thomas 

1913, Mr. Stone
